Week of action on disarmament in Colombia

“Because we care about your life, say no to violence, say no to arms” was the slogan of the Second Week of Action on Disarmament in Medellin, Colombia on 10-17 July. The week was organised by local government and focused on disarmament and particularly on 'disarming domestic violence'. The program included a voluntary gun collection, as well as workshops attended by legal experts. More than 500 people participated in a human chain demanding ‘Respect For Life’ and local artists and musicians performed a song they had written calling for disarmament.
